Unfortunately although parents of a newborn often spend extensive time and research on the furniture and colors, they often forget to consider one of the most important items given that your baby will spend so much time in the crib, and that is nursery bedding. When parents do decide to buy the baby bedding, the range of styles and materials and the variety of items can be quite bewildering. Baby bedding is the cornerstone of the nursery and is important for your baby’s comfort and health; style and designer names must not be the only consideration.
Safe and appropriate crib bedding is important not just for warmth, but also for comfort and cleanliness; bedding that is too warm or not warm enough will cause the infant to be restless and uncomfortable, potentially creating disturbed nights for the baby and for the parents alike. For your child’s health use baby-safe laundry detergent to wash all baby bedding you’ve received (either purchased or gift) to prevent your child from being exposed to dust, allergens, or pesticides from where the bedding had been stored.
Baby boy crib bedding give you three benefits over buying each item separately: coordinated style and design of your baby’s bed, faster and smoother shopping, and better value because total price is cheaper. Choose crib bedding that’s cozy and warm so that your baby feels like he’s being held even when he’s in his crib.
If you want to ensure that you are getting full value for your money, you should exercise caution to avoid buying a set with a number of useless items, as this may be unworthy. While they are great for adults and decorate living rooms and family rooms, those pillows or blankets with a lot of buttons, patchwork or frills can cause injury or worse to a newborn or young children and should be kept away from them to avoid choking or smothering. Be sure to inspect each item in your baby’s crib before buying it, especially the pillows, as decorations can choke an infant, and always be ware of a baby that falls asleep face down, since this is a major suffocation risk.
Comfort, simplicity, tradition and value are found in many economical fabric and bedding sets. Many parents find that extra blankets and quilts are unnecessary, with a few good-quality fitted crib sheets serving most of their needs. Cotton being cool and breathable in summer and warm during cooler climate is an obvious choice as a material for all seasons.
When winter brings icy weather many parents look for warmer blankets and thicker sheets to protect their baby from the elements. In the event you decide to decorate the nursery before you find out the gender of the infant, you would be wise to choose neutral colors to avoid having the dilemma such as either a pink room for a boy or a blue colored room with trucks for a girl when choosing a crib set.
